    By rkelly5405, Mar 28, 2013

    These are the best episodes of the show. Stephanie Powers was were the good old days. Have plots gotten better over the this was an end to an people got killed with all this blood and gore and where the good guys were pretty I must admit Steve was a lady killer. Lol! Now-a-days he would be tamed.

    COZI Bigfoot episodes.

    Great show from my childhood, glad it is on DVD

    By eatabugg, Jun 13, 2011

    It was fun to watch the first TV pilot to see how Steve Austin ended up crashing his aircraft, as I had forgot how that happened from seeing it when I was 8. But....who dreamed up those next two TV pilot episodes?? They were absolutely HORRIBLE!! Trying way too hard to be James Bond-ish, especially Steve trying to be a ladies man, just did NOT work. And who made up the opening credits theme for those first few shows? Again, just terrible, very '70s. Thank goodness its "normal" theme came into play within the first few episodes. Overall however, a fun show to watch, and well worth the cost from Time-Life to get them on DVD.moreless

    Very good!

    The Six Million Dollar Man was a show that was entertaining and it actually taught me about romance. I was about six when I first started watching it. I was enthralled by the action and the feats that this man could perform. He had a bionic right arm, two bionic legs, and a bionic eye that could enable him to see great distances. His strength was more than that of ten men. He could run faster than a car and he was a super intelligence agent. Along the way he meets a variety of interesting characters and ones that I have never forgotten about. There was Barney, the seven million dollar man who lets his bionics take over his mind and he uses them for his own benefits instead of that of his agency. Then there was the probe. The probe was a machine that was designed to go to space but never made it there. On Earth, it wreaks havoc and Steve has his hands full with it. Then of course there was Jamie Summers. She was Steve's girlfriend that has a tragic parachuting accident. Steve, blinded by love demands that she is given bionics. She receives them but she has amnesia. There love is tragically put on hold and it is this plot line that for the first time in my young life, I was taught about the power and tragedy of love.

    But the best of all the episodes of Steve Austin was the one's centering around Bigfoot. This also introduced the world to Andre The Giant. The Bigfoot episodes were scary. Here is this huge creature that is also bionic and he is a little stronger, a little faster and a little more vicious than Steve Austin. It is some of the best T.V. I've ever seen and it is one that will have a lasting impression on me for the rest of my life.

    I remember that I asked my mom how they did all those things. How a man could jump that high, how he could lift a car and such. It was then that my parents explained to me that this was all make believe. That this is what is known as magic. Well it was from that moment on that the movies and TV captured my imagination. And for that I will be eternally greatful to The Six Million Dollar Man.moreless

    Bringing back old memories with the Six Million Dollar Man.

    By devilpuppy1969, Feb 19, 2007

    I like most people who are writing reviews, grew up watching the six million dollar man on sunday nights on ABC. I even had the action figure when I was eight years old. My favorite episodes involved Bigfoot or the Probe, (the machine that had the arms stcking out) I would love to see how it could be done with today's technology. Or better yet, since they are re-making every other television series into a movie, it would be great to see what someon like Speilberg or Lucas, or some other director could do with this classic. Bringing this show back today would be better than half the shows that are on TV today.moreless

    Great show

    By Susie-Gibbs, Sep 24, 2006

    Colonel Steve Austin was a top NASA pilot, critically injured when his experimental spaceplane crashed. Oscar Goldman, head of the OSI (a government organization that develops new technologies), used Austin as a test subject for an experimental procedure. His body was rebuilt using incredible cybernetic technlogy, making him the world's first bionic man. Now, Austin works for Goldman and the OSI, protecting the nation from a myriad of threats.

    Better, faster, stronger... Than just about anything else on TV at that time.

    By nzmadmannz, Jan 22, 2006

    Great show! Lee Majors was Steve Austin. I hear they are thinking of casting Jim Carrey as a new Steve Austin. I can't imagine it. Majors brought so much weight to that role. The isolation of the hero played out in his solitude... The fear of being a freak. With his arm full of wires... That haunting theme that at full speed could inspire a generation of children to run in slow motion... and yet slowed right down could be so haunting... When you are a child he is just a hero... But watching it again... And you see that hero is so along and insecure.. Fascinating. Majors did such a good job. Can you imagine say Hasslehoff playing that role? Steve Austin was far more than just a 'hunk'. And the introduction of the Bionic Woman with them running and jumping fences together is just about the most romantic thing I have ever seen...moreless

    I think it much better TV show in 70\'s. If you are age around 40 or > you much keep one set of this DVD in your house.It is because the story and the visual technical is a great in 70\'s. I think it can compare with STAR WARS and MATRIX that classic movie.

    Steve Austin doesn't fly, he can't run faster then the speed of light and can't lift a rocket and throw it, but he is a bionic man.

    By TVMichigan, Dec 19, 2005

    Steve Austin (after being rebuilt due to an aircraft accident) was rebuilt into the first bionic man ever.

    Steve could do the following.

    1. Austin had bionic legs making him run very fast and leap at tall bounds.

    2. Austin had a bionic right arm making him lift a bulldozer

    3. Austin has some problems with his bionic implants when he's in the cold, but when he returns to a warmer area they go back to normal.

    I was too young to watch the show when it debuted, but remember watching it in the 1980s when reruns were shown on TV. I want to say ABC, but I'm not sure.

    This is my #1 show I'd like TVLand to air, probably will never happen.moreless
